I look at some of peoples query contains "cf[xyzvw]", where x, y, z, v, z are digits between 0 and 9. What does those number 'xyzvw' represent? Why people use those number in the "cf"? How to find out the mean of those numbers as a non-administrator? For example,
project = 15100 AND issuetype in ("Defect TRACKER") AND status in (Submitted, Assigned, "Defect Submitted", Accepted) AND cf in ("CS 09.0.00", EMPTY)
Hi @Lawrence ,
xyzvw represents custom field id. You can either use this id or custom field name in JQL.
If I'm not Jira administrator, I use REST API to get basic information about custom field.
After you log in to Jira, insert this URL to the browser:
You should get JSON with custom fields and if you search xyzvw through these data, you should be able to find your custom field's properties.
If you did a bit of digging, you would indeed find that the numbers are immutable database entries. You can change the name of something but not change the unique id for it. I'd recommend not bothering to do that digging, it's exactly what @Hana Kučerová has said
